The Silent Ballet: Volume 2 [LostChildren016]
The Silent Ballet: Volume 2
The second volume of The Silent Ballet Compilation series continues where the first left off in its pledge to work hand in hand with independent artists from around the globe. The response to the first volume was huge; unfortunately we are unable to accommodate everyone who would like to be included in the series, but hopefully in due time most will receive a spot in the limelight. We remain committed to presenting some of the finest emerging artists to the world, offering previews of exciting future releases, and unearthing exclusive and rare tracks for our readers. Of course, all of this is done pro bono, and the existence of this series relies solely on the generosity of the bands and labels involved, whom we encourage you to support if you find the compilation to your liking. A full version of The Silent Ballet Webzine will be launching later this year. We do hope it satisfies the need for an intermediary resource in this ever populous culture of music.

About the Artist Clifford Harvey is a young artist experimenting with visual and audible art, and the fusion of the two. Typically Cliff has the luxury to be at the helm of both parts in a project, but restricting him to the visual side of the compilation threw him a curveball. The resulting work far exceeded our expectations and we are extremely grateful to have had Cliff contribute to the compilation series. Those interested in contacting Cliff for other projects should do so at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit his website at www.sixteenhands.com.

Subject: Simply beautiful.
I have been an ardent follower of God Is An Astronaut for quite some time, and so I must confess that having been turned onto your wonderful netlabel by Michael's "Boring Machines Disturbs Sleep" blog, I rushed straight for this release when I saw their name. I was not disappointed.
This compilation is a wonderful collection of everything that I love about independent artists in this kind of genre. Magyar Posse's opener is simply excellent, that ascending bassline that kicks in after about 10 seconds drew me in straight away, and the whole piece was just a lovely ride through some kind of beautifully chilly soundscape. The rhythms should by all means have been awkward, but not in the slightest, and the loud/soft sections could have been so generic, but avoided this entirely. Great track.
With expectations this high after the first track, I was crossing my fingers that the rest would live up to the opener. And by God it did. I can honestly say I enjoyed every single piece on this album, the stand-outs being Magyar Posse, God Is An Astronaut and Capulet. Simply beautiful.
